    Seems like a win-win for the owners of Dancers Hill House.....if you're buying a ticket, read the terms & conditions carefully. I'm surprised that this venture is apparently legal but it's a curious world we're living in.

    SCAM ALERT! This is basically paid advertising. They are never going to sell enough raffle tickets, they end up keeping most of the money as expenses and they the raffle a small amount of cash off at the end. Usually the winner is someone known to the people organising the "raffle". There isn't any raffle, it's a quick way to make a few quid, all "legal". Usually pop up in the newspapers, I've even seen one such "raffle" as a paid story/advertising in the telegraph.

    Extortionate estate agent fees put many off selling via them these days, it's not surprising that other avenues are now being explored.

    be careful and check the small print... you may take part but the prize is not guaranteed..

    I entered a raffle to win a French Chateau in the Summer. The price they needed was never met and it all fizzled out with vague promises to donate the money to a good cause and that was that. Money gone.

    I stopped reading this story after the first paragraph because I was afraid the dullness of it might rub off.

    Every house will sell at the correct price. Brexit hasn't stopped people buying. Maybe they're asking too much for it.........or it's just a scam!

    Of course Brexit is to blame. Nothing to do with greedy owners asking far more than the houses are worth! Hell, this Dancer's Hill House has gone up a cool million
